In a snowy German forest an American patrol has to cross behind enemy lines by skis in order to blow up an important railroad bridge. The task is made harder by conflicts between the platoon's veteran sergeant (Frank Wolff) and its inexperienced lieutenant (Michael Forest) and by constant attacks by pursuing German troops.

Roger Corman's Worst?
I love the films of Roger Corman. That said, this is probably his weakest effort out of the dozens he directed. Even the infamous WASP WOMAN is more entertaining than this dreary, forgettable snore-fest. In fact, I'd have to say this is his worst film as the producer and/or director. If you can stay awake and are sharp-eyed, you will see him make a cameo appearance, but by that time you won't care!
